Costa Rica Jaguar
This is a fun little coffee. It the same coffee as the Costa Rica Natural that I'm offering but it as a honey process.
This coffee is called Jaguar because $.10 for every pound sold goes to protecting Costa Rica's diminishing jaguar population. Genuine Origin matches that $.10 this one of their coffees with a purpose. They are working with FUNDAZOO in this project. It is a honor for me to carry this lovely coffee and do some good. I hope that you will enjoy this coffee as much as I do.
This a medium body coffee that balances well with it's lively acidity.

About the Coffee The honey process started in Costa Rica and has since spread to other countries in Central America. In this process some or all of the mucilage of the coffee cherry - or coffee honey - that coats the parchment is left on during the drying stage, giving the coffee a sweetness that resembles a natural. This Tarrazú coffee was hand-picked, depulped and moved to patios - African beds - where it was dried for a week until it reached the desired humidity.
